Marxists jumped in within minute of Pope Francis' election, to start flinging mud at him as a "collaborator" with Pinochet during Argentina's "Dirty War" of 1976-83.

The "other F-word" (Fascist) is already being applied to him on the left-wing blogs.

Problem is: the one man that "the narrative" cannot ignore --- Fr. Francisco Jalic, who was kidnapped and tortured by Pinochet's secret police during the Dirty War --- says he does not consider Pope Francis guilty of Pinochet's crimes, and considers the matter closed.

Read an bookmark: this is going to come up again and again, since the Left has decided to attack this Pope from Day One.

The Left doesn't want dialogue. They want the Pope's guts in a Hefty bag.

Reconciled: Fr. Francisco Jalics and Pope Francis

Why is Pinochet of Chile getting the blame for Argentina’s Dirty War? Other than the usual leftist cant of “It’s Goldberg’s fault.”

Wrong country. If you want to make stuff up, you could at least pretend to do some research...

Err, Pinochet was the general who took over the government of Chile after an anti-Marxist coup. The military junta in Argentina that made so many people "disappear" were a group of thugs whose denouement came at the hands of Lady Thatcher when they were stupid enough to take on Britain over the Falklands. In comparison Pinochet genuinely saved Chile from a Marxist takeover and ably ran the country.

Augusto Pinochet Ugarte was president of Chile, not Argentina. Jorge Rafael Videla led the junta that ruled Argentina following the coup of March 24, 1976.

But of course. The left never operates in truth. Just look at how our current regime works. And lies work so well!

The AP report also stated that Bergoglio withdrew support for Jalics and Fr. Orlando Yorio, after both refused his order to abandon their work in the slums for their own safety.

Translation: the two priests were getting involved with pro-Communist agitation, Bergoglio ordered them to get back to doing their real jobs and stop endangering themselves. Sounds like Bergoglio gave them good advice.

Of course, the Marxists will try to paint Bergoglio as being a death-squad leader.

If they, “reconciled,” that means he thinks the Pope was responsible for it or complicit.

Uh, Pinochet was from Chile, not Argentina. If you want to bash Catholics, at least get the narrative right..
